Did they update the M emblem on the M seat to the color version too like they updated the rear spoiler to black instead of body color? I have M seat on order and was about to order the color emblem for the seat... Lucky that you've just posted this, thanks! Haha!
The colour version is not available in the U.K.

I did it myself 👍

It didn’t like the black version.

I see, do you happened to have the link to the part? Thanks!!!
Something like this on eBay.
The white is available anywhere but if I had to buy I would get chrome or silver.

I just had some white available

Thinking of changing the title to

‘the stone chip has landed 😳😳’

Washed the car on Sunday and not there and spotted on Wednesday.

I assume that the black is the base material.

The issue is have I just been unlucky or is this the sign of things to come.

A few year ago I had a Subaru Impreza and that got stone chipped on the 1st weekend and after 10 months the car was peppered with stone chip damage.

My 2003 3 Series also suffer from major stone chip damage on the front spoiler and bonnet.

I will buy a repair kit and see if I can cover it but just wondered if anyone else especially with Brooklyn Grey cars have noticed any damage ?

It is a lease car so I am not going to the expense of PPF.

Wow. That looks like a perfect chip almost like an eggshell. Have the dealer check if there is paint defect. That looks like it’s a brittle area. Is there a ding sent there as well. If none than even more so see if the dealer will warranty the repair. Longshot but worth a try.
I have to go to the dealer on Monday so will ask them to check

I’m not impressed as you can imagine

I agree, I was just going to write the same. And we can’t have the seat belts either which look great and are well worth the $300 you have to pay in some markets.
Seat belts are standard on M50 and part of the M Sport package on the e40 in the U.K.

I had them on my 330e and they looked amazing.

The seats were a £800 option and worth every penny.

Why these are not available in the US is a joke.

I found out last week that a key card is available for the US market but not for U.K.


I would have definitely gone for this if available.

Then again I have not seen much logic to many things with BMW in the 12 months I waited for this car.

So perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised.😳
